Nigeria remain in the 44th position in the world but moved up to the fourth spot in Africa on the November FIFA ranking.

Back-to-back stalemates in the month under review ensured that the three-time African champions remain stagnant on the spot they attained last month.

Gernot Rohr's men got 1427 points after a 1-1 stalemate against South Africa in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers - although the result was enough to help them seal their place in the tournament in Cameroon - and a goalless draw with Uganda in a friendly game.

However, the west African moved to the fourth spot, having been ranked fifth in October behind Senegal, Tunisia and Morocco who are 23rd, 26th and 40th in the world respectively.

Congo DR are fifth, while Ghana, Cameroon, Egypt, Burkina Faso and Mali make up the top 10 African countries.

Meanwhile, Belgium retain their spot at the top of the world ranking as well as France, Brazil, Croatia, and England who complete the top five nations.

The next Fifa World Ranking of 2018 will be published on December 20.
